December 16, 2013 After spending a night at Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel, it was time to continue our journey back to Europe, but first we had a short transit in New York. Mike and I took time to visit one of our good friends, Rico and his partner John.

Arrival at JFK
It was a cold Saturday morning when we landed in New York (JFK)
Meeting up with one of my bestfriends, Rico.
The flight was just less than two hours so there was not really much to review here. The snacks and drinks offered were okay and the wifi service would have been much better if it had been complimentary for the first class passengers. I am not really sure why the US domestic flights have first class and economy, with business class missing. Needless to say, I still prefer the intra-European flights by the European carriers like Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines specially when it comes to service and food offerings. Overall, a nice flight.
